Industrial accidents are happening with increasing frequency, and aging equipment is a leading cause. The accident rate for industrial job sites increases sharply after equipment has been used for 30 years. Replacing or maintaining outdated machinery isn’t just best practice—it’s necessary for safety. Owners and management are ultimately responsible for the maintenance and safety of every job site. Every moment that management stalls on essential maintenance, they bear the fault for any resulting accidents.
Grievous Injuries from Industrial Accidents
Industrial sites are perilous, with injuries ranging from amputations and crush injuries to burns and brain injuries. These injuries reduce a person’s ability to work right as their medical costs skyrocket, leading to insurmountable debt. Loss of limbs or cognitive ability leads to a lower quality of life in terms of recreation and relationships. In addition to physical trauma, industrial workers are often at risk of internal lung damage due to toxic exposure. Long-term exposure to hazardous substances can lead to irreversible damage, affecting not just your health but your ability to work.
